Windows Since its introduction at Microsoft's BUILD conference last September, Windows 8 has garnered a large measure of attention, especially with regards to the new Metro interface. The feature that intrigued me the most, however, was the inclusion of Hyper-V.

There doesn't seem to be any performance penalty for the host, I run hyper-v on a AMD X2 2.4Ghz box with 8G of ram, running 2 Win2k8R2 vms, a 2k3r2 VM and a Debian VM, and can watch 1080p video, play games, whatever, while the box is streaming video to every other device in the house using tversity. It might be running ~50-60% cpu, but it's responsive and fast.
